Intentionality is particularly interested in where social enterprise and the well-being of individuals and communities meet. Measuring the social impact of social enterprises helps demonstrate the benefits of social enterprise to society. It also helps in contract tenders and in bidding for grants and other funds by demonstrating a strong, measurable commitment to your aims and objectives as well as compelling quantitative and qualitative measures of the social returns achieved as a result of a financial investment.
As a member of the Social Return On Investment (SROI) network and with substantial experience in measures of quality of life, self-esteem, trust, well-being, happiness and much more, we can help you think through and implement a comprehensive and appropriate social impact measurement strategy.
In late 2010, we held a sell-out ‘Introduction to Social Impact Measurement’ seminar in London which covered a range of tools, techniques and tips. We also ran a similar seminar for UnLtd Award Winners, after which Dan Lehner, Development Manager, said:
“Steve recently put on a session on Social Impact for our UnLtd Level 2 Award Winners – including a group workshop followed by one-to-one discussions focussed on individuals. Both myself and all Award Winners present found the session hugely interesting and helpful. Steve provides a very balanced overview of the options out there, delivered in a language people understand and clearly tailored to the audience present – in this instance early stage social entrepreneurs. I would highly recommend Steve’s work.”
We’re always conscious of the ‘triple bottom line’ of financial, social and environmental value that social enterprises are committed to delivering. Therefore, Intentionality is partnering with Secos, a social enterprise consultancy delivering environmental services and eco-audits. Between us we can help your organisation maximise its social impact and minimise its environmental impact.
